Whatever you do, whatever you say
Nothing can push the feeling away
It’s here in my heart and it’s here in my head
I feel like I’m a part of a book I’ve read

The origami flowers, made from pages from a Chinese magazine, hold within them photographs of nude women in idyllic landscapes that are clearly taken in the studio. In a country where pornography is banned, the magazine is marketed for art, but the style of the photographs suggest that the reader is more erotically than aesthetically interested. Voet literally, and metaphorically, folds together different forms of artificial beauty. As part of an on-going series, the flowers stand in vases based on traditional forms, but carved from the base material of cinderblock.
